“Doing” a Doctorate – week 27

We need to change our family surname to Lumpy McLump –  first my mom’s and my matching hand lumps last week, and then this week I spotted a lump in youngest’s neck lymph. Yes, I did immediately begin palpating his neck, skull and armpit lymphs, and yes we were in public …
